(November 21, 2013) SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Round four of the Asia-Pacific Tennis League’s New South Wales Conference was headlined by four-time Grand Slam doubles finalist Casey Dellacqua, who has spent the off-season in Sydney gearing up for what will be a physically demanding 2014 season.
The Asia-Pacific Tennis League is the premier national team tennis competition in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. With five separate State conferences and four to six separate men’s and women’s teams within each conference, the ATL brings rising stars from the ITF and Challenger tours together with elite ATP and WTA players, both active and retired.
The format of the ATL is similar to World Team Tennis, teams competing in fast-paced singles and doubles rubbers, whose shortened format features first-to-four sets, super tie-breaks and playing service lets. Spectators enjoy both elite-level tennis and other entertainment including courtside music
